Glassring Ring, 1986
Hermsen experimented with alternative ways to incorporate fine stones/pearls into jewelry, to be a main element rather than a decorative feature. As a result, he designed faceted glass stones to meet his need. This ring has a T-shaped post that fits between the fingers and a large stone, without which the ring would not be wearable.
